Palm Handheld Technology in Pre-Service Teacher Education
Wachira, Patrick; Vonderwell, Selma; Keengwe, Jared
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v15 n4 p151-155 2008
Teacher education programs continue to be challenged to prepare prospective teachers to integrate technology into the day-to-day instruction and to strive to instil dispositions of openness to experimentation with ever-evolving technological tools and their pervasive impact on mathematics education. In this paper several activities are used to introduce palm handheld technology to pre-service teachers and to illustrate that with appropriate software, these tools can support a variety of learning activities that support the goals of reform in mathematics. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
